The 12 Foundation Stones

Updated on March 23, 2012

The 12 Essential Elements of the Gospel

The whole of the gospel of Jesus Christ can be comprehended in the 12 essential Elements of the Gospel. They are the 12 Foundation Stones upon which we build a strong faith in Jesus Christ. They are the spiritual foundation of your faith. (1 Corinthians 3:10-11)

You need a basis of knowledge to be established in the faith and to assist you to serve God in the name of Jesus Christ. You need a basis of knowledge to build faith in the image of Jesus Christ and to express Him. The 12 Elements of the Gospel is that basis. They are the essentials of the faith. They are the principles of the doctrine of Christ (Hebrews 6:1)

God Wants to Put Your Mind in a New Frame of Thinking

Knowledge is to faith as pruning is to a tree. Like the pruning of a tree, your cycles of growth must begin. The things you nurtured in Satan's kingdom have to be removed. God removes you from Satan's kingdom and then removes Satan's kingdom from you. Whether you know it or not, Satan's knowledge had a profound influence over your perception of life. You began to weigh reality by his lies.

It is the mind and will of God to restore the church to the understanding of the exact knowledge of each of the 12 essential Elements of the Gospel. I remember writing these Elements on a chalk board in a school where I worked as a janitor in the mid 1970s. I was in an American Literature classroom when I began to use the chalkboard to work out the Elements. I was intrigued at how God designed them and knew that there had to be a central Element that tied them all together. That is the Element Grace.

I felt a strong presence of God as He began to develop the understanding of the Elements in my mind. He made me to know both the binary and proclitic relationship of the Elements and made me to understand why they are defined as a synergistic work that can only be observed in the eco system of His truth.

If you are serious about your faith then it is vital that you learn all you can about God's purpose for each of the 12 Foundation Stones, which are the 12 Elements of the Gospel. Go To. . . Tour the Basics . Our free online courses will help you build a solid foundation of faith in Jesus Christ.

Freed on Grace - Is God Speaking to You About Grace?

12 Foundation Stones: Grace Definition
12 Foundation Stones: Grace Definition

by Teacher Maria vonAnderseck

Sandie Freed (Prophetic Insight, Charisma Magazine) shares what she believes to be a word from God concerning 2012. In her recent article "Supernatural Grace to Do the Impossible" she wrote, "When I was praying about the year of 2012, I kept hearing the Lord speak to me about grace. . .I believe this year we will revisit the gift of grace and gain greater understanding of God's goodness." (retrieved from http://www.charismamag.com/index.php/prophetic-ins...

My Blog "Freed On Grace" takes the reader through the spotted revelation to cut through the ambiguity and get to the real meaning of the revelation. . .

Read about God's warning and promise about the Element Grace.

  • Find out why Satan's definition of Grace has thrived for so long.
  • Can you trust teaching from leadership like Freed who lacks experience in Grace?
  • Learn how to identify if your faith is on a false journey with Satan's promises.
  • Why God has restored the true definition of faith through Apostle Eric vonAnderseck
  • Did you know. . .Grace is the first of the 12 Foundation Stones?
  • What is your faith reaching for?
  • Why a Johnny-Come-Lately pretends to have the message about the restoration of the Element Grace, while at the same time testifies not to have it.
There are a few key points from her article that the Lord wishes me to address to clear up some confusion:

1. The word of knowledge: Freed wrote, "When I was praying about the year of 2012, I kept hearing the Lord speak to me about grace. . . I believe this year we will revisit the gift of grace and gain greater understanding of God's goodness."

2. The definition of grace: Freed wrote, "Most of us are aware that grace is unmerited or undeserved favor."

3. The inability to recognize Jesus Christ in His spiritual tools to understand the pathway of grace from the throne of God to the heart: Freed wrote: ". . .most of us have, in reality, believed that grace is based upon performance and our religious works. However, receiving grace from God has absolutely nothing to do with our performance at all. . ."

      Believers cannot serve God with only part of the tools just as a carpenter cannot perform the tasks of the trade with only nails and an hammer. Those that deny the fulness of Christ in the tokens of His propitiation will fall short of the glory of God (lack the substance of His kingdom).

      Logic vs. Reason: We witness the logic of the flesh to be insufficient for faith. What is the difference then with logic and reason? The soul suffers inequities with the knowledge of the world because Godâs Spirit will not sanctify knowledge that contradicts the Creator. The powers you resource determines the perspective your reality and the kingdom you serve.

      Luke 16:15

      âAnd he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.â

      Those that seek to please themselves follow the knowledge of this world.

      Matthew 16:17

      âAnd Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.â

      The power of Christ is expressed in the charity of these virtues. If the soul is absent of these things there is no salvation through His regeneration of the heart.

      Even in the first century when the apostles were ministering there were those that challenged them on the testimony of Christ, ancient word meanings, proper timing of tongues, baptism, Jewish customs and law, and the Lord's return.

      The church had the benefit of the stewardship and still struggled about doctrine and government as we witness in the Book of Johnâs Revelation chapters 1-3.

      Now 2000 years later the church faces greater challenges on the same topics but absent the benefit of the apostles calling. That is why God is restoring the church by calling first apostles.

      Without the calling we see how Satan prevailed in the structure and function of the church. Satanâs ministers changed the seed of the tree and the fruits of Christ from the work of the Spirit into the moral-code of the law (from the Spirit into the Flesh).

      Using the scriptures for the psychology of them to challenge the moral center of the heart replacing the covenant of Christ and His work of regeneration in the soul.

      The true witness of Christ in ones faith is the presence of His grace bonding the Body of Christ together in charity with one mind and one House of faith.

      The Master Builder being God oversees His work of construction through apostles to reflect His craftsmanship in the heart by those stones of knowledge we call the 12 elements. These bear His image of faith and likeness in fruit in the charity of those who believe through grace.

      You need knowledge and skills to construct a house, and so to build the kingdom of God requires the same. A believer transgresses God when they randomly try to make a gospel out of their own materials of study.

      Those that build the House of God don't cast the stones of accusation against the righteous, but rather gather them to give in charity. We build a fortress of refuge in love one to another.

      Through the 12 whole stones of the gospel one gives expression to Jesus Christ. One is not giving expression to Him through the passion of man or oneâs intellect, but through that which defines who He is for it was Jesus Himself who said that He is the truth (John 14:6). The 12 whole stones of the gospel is the truth of the knowledge of Jesus Christ and this foundation is necessary for faith to reflect the image and likeness of Jesus Christ.

      To communicate with God is to express His likeness. God has made this possible by providing the truth back to the Church in the form of the 12 elements of the gospel. As Christ is seen in each element, so too Christ is given expression through these elements as the token for living faith thus enabling the flow of communication between God the Father and the believer.

      The 12 stones of the gospel are the ABCâs of the covenant language. If you want your faith to express the likeness of Jesus Christ then faith needs a foundation that reflects Him perfectly. We see this in the 12 holy stones of the gospel in which each element represents Jesus Christ perfectly, with nothing of man added and nothing of God taken away.

      Reflection: âBiochemistry professor Michael Behe, the originator of the term irreducible complexity, defines an irreducibly complex system as one "composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning"â. (Wikipedia, âIrreducible Complexityâ)

      A good example of irreducible complexity is the bacterial flagellum which is a bacteria which system is built to operate with all parts dependent on one another or else the whole system fails to work when one or more parts are missing. Irreducible complexity also reminds me of the proclitic nature and synergy between the elements of the gospel. The elements of the gospel all depend on each other to represent the work of the cross and the power of the resurrection therefore they have no independent relationship and are thus proclitic. The elements of the gospel also operate synergistically meaning they work together as a whole to effect the whole work of the Spirit which is more than any individual element can do.

      My first observation is that in the case of the bacterial flagellum when one or more parts are missing the whole does not function and when one or more parts are added the flagellum is now a different specie of bacteria. Itâs just like how the elements of the gospel will cease to function for the entire work of the Spirit when one or more elements are missing and also when one or more elements are added because the foundation knowledge being the Word of God (elements of the gospel) is titrated. This means that the philosophies and traditions of man pollute the truth when external knowledge is added and truth is not represented as it should be when knowledge is missing thus truth is turned into false knowledge.

      Itâs also interesting to observe that when we express the elements of the gospel by contact with the covenant tools (contact for increase) they impact the soul simultaneously to effect the work of the Spirit (synergy) because they do not find expression apart from each other (proclitic).

      We therefore need the elements delivered to us wholistically by living apostles who oversee the elements of the gospel in the hearts of believers as a foundation of truth. By this we carry the DNA of Christ in our hearts which manifests as the substance of Christ (fruits of the Spirit) when we labor with the covenant tools.

      âWe need the foundation of truth (elements of the gospel) to keep His second covenant commandments.â

      Understanding the true place value from God's perspective, of these 12 Essential Elements of the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives the believer the sure footing for faith many are yet longing for. Where this foundation for faith had not been laid by Living Covenant Apostles, many have suffered the effects of a walk of confusion and condemnation, which left them longing for the fullness of the promises of Christ's liberty. Praise God for restoring Pure Knowledge, Sanctified Stewardship, and the Holy Priesthood of Jesus Christ in this day.

      Yesterday I was speaking to someone about the place of our worship and the importance of the truth as that foundation whereby unchiseled holy stones of knowledge build within the heart this altar by which we worship the Lord.

      I was saying to them that to remove the truth from oneâs functioning in service to God is to remove that altar which the Lord sanctifies in our functioning in His house for as Jesus said that He was the truth, He was saying that He is the knowledge by which we are to fellowship with Him.

      The truth, as Jesus pointed to Himself, is the altar of knowledge that is built with the 12 whole stones of the gospel. This truth is the only truth as Jesus provided one pattern of knowledge for our faith to reflect Him.

      The truth manifests as Jesus (the person, what He says and what He does) just as the biological information in DNA manifests as a person, animal or plant. The 12 elements of the gospel are the DNA of God containing truth which the Spirit uses to manifest Jesus to us. When faith is built on these elements the virtues of Christ are formed within the soul giving the inner man the shape and form of Christ.

      This is why when we abandon the law of Moses and respond to grace and truth we do not become lawless and out of control for God inscribes the law of the Spirit on the tablet of our hearts meaning that grace and truth now governs the soul for divine transformation to daily take place within the inner man.

      After the death of the first century apostles, the knowledge of Satan infiltrated the church, bringing destruction and confusion to the church. Today we see words such as faith, righteousness, holiness, sanctification and grace that have been redefined according to the imagination and reason of man. When the true meaning of these elements were lost, their function was also lost and today many believer's faith lack the fullness of Jesus Christ.

      God has now restored His true meaning of these elements so that believers faith will no longer carry the testimony of lack, but through the function of these elements, their faith will testify of the fullness and completion that is in Christ.

      "The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence."

      Confucius said this many years ago, more than 400 years B.C.

      When he did he planted a seed, Satan trying to thwart the first century church, but with no success failed to do so. This false message though began taking root hundreds of years later in Christian circles confusing the message of the church. For after apostolic stewardship of the first century came and went, the fallen church accepted this Confucius message as the gospel, and preaches this message today as part of its foundation.

      This kind of preaching is not the true gospel of Jesus Christ. God and His Christ were not taken by surprise.

      Their remedy for false doctrines has always been in how the 1st century church prevailed over leavened doctrines and precepts of men, by returning apostolic stewardship to the church and bring it out of its confused messages and Confucius state, into the Gospel of truth with living apostles today.

      When we build the house of faith upon the knowledge of the 12 foundation stones, we are building upon the rock, which is Jesus Christ. But those who refuse God's government and who refuse His holy knowledge in order to pursue their imaginations about God, are building upon sand. Their faith will not stand, for that which is built on sand is built to fall.

      There is nothing that glorifies the Father but to see the increase of His own reflection in us....Therefore, we must learn of Christ and the elements of His gospel by which we are transformed by grace through faith. For this reason God issues grace to inspire our willingness to learn of Him through honoring His stewardship that we may serve Him according to the terms of His covenant and priesthood (1Peter 2:9) by the knowledge and pattern of Jesus Christ, the Living record of God.

      What stood out in the first few lines is : "God wants to put your mind in a new frame of thinking."

      As an unconverted believer, I tried to overcome the battle of the mind with many efforts of the flesh, but with no avail. I soon realised after being baptised into the Covenant of Jesus Christ, that faith needs knowledge to work with and that our minds can only be renewed by following a process called regeneration.

      As God brings healing to our souls throug our cycles of growth, we experience regeneration and the renewing of the mind. It is through this renewing of the mind that God puts our mind into a new frame of thinking.

      We now have the perspective of Christ, and see from the perspective of God. We are freed from the perspective of the flesh, which only beholds self and the errors of others which come against our principle.

      By faith we are justified and free to see how God sees us, the world and His plan.

      Christ commanded us to have faith in God, but faith in God is only possible through Jesus Christ, Merely acknowledging God in faith is not sustainable and ends up a struggle.

      But moulding with and submitting to the authority of His Grace (the revelation of Christ to the believer), faith becomes sustainable because it becomes a lifestyle.

      The foundation stones provide the believer a clear system and pattern to which he can submit to and mould with.

      Doing this we submit to and mould with Christ (who is Truth, foundation stones) and our faith is then acceptable to God, for Christ pleases God.

      Without receiving the foundational knowledge of Jesus Christ as it is in the 12 whole stones of the gospel, man simply sees the outline of Jesus in reading of Him but fails to experience the reality of the Christ when walking with Him in His covenant.

      What the 12 whole stones of the gospel does is that it provides substance for faith to build with as God empowers this holy and ordered knowledge. One needs to receive this foundation of knowledge in the heart if one wants to experience a living relationship with God through the Son.

      This is the fullfillment for our day, to all those who receive foundation knowledge set by apostles. Christ is seen in His living knowledge and is heard in this living knowledge set in the heart as a foundation of truth by apostles. Prophets only hoped to see and Kings to hear those things we know see and hear by the holy knowledge of Christ.

      âKnowledge is to faith as air is to the lungsâ. This is a spiritual sacrifice I had during prayer that made me reflect upon how essential the truth of the knowledge of Jesus Christ is for faith to function. One can think of the 12 whole stones of the gospel as the oxygen one needs for faith to be made living; as one inhales through prayer and reflection of the pure doctrine of Christ and exhales through reciprocation of charity God is touching the soul with His virtue to restore an image and likeness that reflects only Him.

      Just as our lungs need air for us to breathe, faith needs knowledge that is empowered by the witness of the Spirit. It is the will of God for man to work with the knowledge of the 12 whole stones He has restored to the Church in this time for Him to beget sons after His own likeness.

      Everybody is looking for something to bring fullfillment or completion to the soul, but not everybody finds it. The only thing that will bring completion to the soul is Jesus Christ. Not your job, not your family, not your children and not your wealth. The soul was designed for completion in Christ, and for the increase of His likeness. Through the 12 elements of the gospel of Jesus Christ, does the soul find the virtues of Him that created us. One does not stumble onto this knowledge just by chance, one has to seek God for the Truth. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seeks Him after His requirements. When the 12 elements takes root within the soul, His fruits are birthed within, and through this fruit, we honour and glorify God. This is our completion. That we may serve Him in righteousness.

      If a language is unknown, words are easily misinterpreted and error or confusion thus results. This being so with the languages of the world wherein all share in the similar realities of that which is common to man, how much more can one expect the language of God to need clear instruction as to bring distinction between man's reality which is physical and God's reality which is Spiritual. By the knowledge of the 12 Essential Elements of the Gospel God is offering the believer clear understanding of the liberty He has for us in Christ, that they may share in that very liberty and fall not short in ignorance. For too long now has God's people suffered by the teachings of the blind leaders of the blind who have perverted the doctrine of Christ. This teaching redirects those of true faith to that greater covenant of which the early Christians attested, being that of Jesus Christ..

      False knowledge has corrupted the truth by the leaven of manâs aspiration to remove Christ from the gospel leaving faith without the witness of the Spirit for it to be made living. Faith that is living is empowered by God in bearing witness to Christ as the Spirit enters into truth for man to reflect Christ in word and deed. The foundation of truth is the anointing that empowers faith to reflect His likeness.

      the forgiveness part is always there,because of the record the witness is using,therefore how can our conscience cry out as a witness against what

      is going on by faith,if one eats halal food,the conscience cant condemn you

      why the forgiveness part leads to the witnesing part on Gods behalf and ours

      ie working with the same record.=dont partake of false knowledge of the bible that deflies the conscience.why no seal of the spirit,therefore no redemption in christ for faith.

      ApostleMattB 4 years ago

      Understanding the 12 elements of the gospel of Jesus Christ, through the instruction of God's living apostles we know what the elements of grace, faith, righteousness, justification, sanctification, holiness, ext. are according to God's perspective. This frees us from having to resource the imagination to try figure out what God expects of us and how to co-labor with His Spirit. The knowledge of God's truth liberates us from serving God in ignorance.

      Romans 10:2-3, "For I bear them record that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God."

      Using scriptures to proxy for your righteousness, is to excuse yourself from the responsibility of the priesthood, and not allow in your life the righteousness of Christ.

      As Jesus said, our righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, this Righteousness that Christ spoke about He spoke of Himself, being the foundation of Christ Himself that would be set by His Apostles,

      He included the scribes bound together along with the Pharisee for they are those who transcribed, edited, and interpreted the Bible. They were always in, and of the text and not of the truth.

      Mat_5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

      But rather this method of the scribes that being, proxy by precept has as a consequence, to make the many who enter in that way, the sad u see modern day Pharisee.

      The promises of God to those who love Him are fulfilled in each of the elements of the gospel.

      The promise of God to reveal Himself to us (Grace)

      THe promise of God to allow Christ to stand for us as the standard for our faith (Righteousness)

      The promise of God to engraft His Spirit within us (Sanctification)

      The promise of God to buffer the soul during times of agitation as we go through our cycles of growth (Peace)

      The promise that we will cease to labour with iniquity (Rest)

      The promise that God will set the terms for our fellowship with Him (Truth)

      The promise that our souls will be healed and restored to purity (Regeneration)

      The promise of a new perspective after the mind of Christ (renewing of the mind)

      Apostles lay the foundation of truth within the heart, defining each element according to God's perspective. But the Spirit brings life to our faith as we go through experience with each of these elements and we learn that God is faithful to fulfill His promises to us daily. What a blessing it is to understand the process by which God heals the soul from iniquity!

      Amen! When the foundation knowledge (12 elements) of Jesus Christ is laid within our hearts we begin to truly experience the fullness of His love within the soul. Every saint can testify of the joy and peace they experience within the boundaries of God's covenant. They are living witnesses of God's work within them.

      Grace (Spirit) and Truth (12 stones) brings healing in the soul as we exercise our will with this knowledge. This healing brings about a new perspective. It is this perspective that frees us from death and gives us hope for that which is to come.

      There is no lasting completion apart from God. We were designed to have fellowship with our Maker and the soul is dead without this contact.

      The foundation stones sets the terms for this fellowship, for we cannot approach God on our own terms no matter how good our intentions.

The promise of son ship and His eternal inheritance is preserved for those who walk in covenant with God, being joined to Him through continual contact with the knowledge of Christ.

      When we work with the things of the Second Covenant, the Spirit orders the knowledge of Christ in the soul bringing restoration and healing and beautifies the soul with the virtues of Christ. As we embrace these things our hope is not in the temporary things of this world, being our temporary abode and having no eternal value, our hope is in Christ and our tethering to the things from above which joins us to Him, Amen.

      I truly have experienced how the soul without the true and living knowledge of Jesus Christ is continually wandering in search of true inner peace and completion and never come to know the fullness of Christ, in Him we are truly fulfilled and lack nothing.

      Amen Apostle Matthew.

      I was thinking today that without truth Godâs character, purpose and plan could not properly be defined to us. In the absence of truth man defines God and who He is and His will according to manâs own truths which is built upon a lie which makes man weigh things according to this perspective, which is prejudiced to serve self. This is a heavy yoke to carry and one God wants to free us from (John 8:32).

      Truth is a constant because it is Christ, this is the cornerstone upon which the foundation of truth is built. It is the person, what He says and what He does. Learning to understand the 12 elements of the gospel is learning to trust who God is, what He says and what He is forming within us that by this experience we learn to weigh things according to His perspective. Truth now becomes the scale of discernment by which we know God, His character, His purpose and His plan. Truth removes the ambiguity of the wondering mind to set before it the perspective we are to walk in; this is why it is necessary for all believers to have the 12 foundation stones laid in the heart that we may learn to weigh things according to the truth.

All 12 elements of Jesus Christ work together as a whole, which the Spirit of God uses to form the likeness of Christ in the soul. If one was to remove either water, or sunlight, or soil from a plant, the plant would perish, even so for our Christian walk to be profitable unto the kingdom of God we have to build faith upon this foundation knowledge of Godâs truth.

      This is our number one goal as Christians; to bear forth fruit unto God (the fruits of the Spirit) and it is Godâs will and good pleasure to bring salvation to the soul of man that we may reflect His likeness.

When the believer is uncoverted and tries to build his faith on anything less less than this foundation what he builds is on the shifting sand that will not stand when their faith is tried.

      Because of slavish devotion to scripture and not true faith the church does not know who has been called and even who is sent.

      So today everyone just gets up and goes, forget the message, truth does not matter everyone has what they need, which is confinement and imprisonment to the scriptures.

      God has decreed those who He has called, those who have His message of truth. His foreordained authoritative orders, is His government of apostles.

      This weekend during my prayer time I received this spiritual sacrifice, âGrace is the pillar of our faithâ. I thought about the binary relationship that these two elements of the gospel share and how we have faith because of the operation of grace.

      Without understanding the element of grace, one fails to understand the response in faith. What satan has so cleverly done with the element of grace is that he has removed Christ from grace and thus removed the responsibility of faith and nullified the priesthood to mere lip-service.

      Just as grace is the pillar of our faith, grace is the first stone that one learns of when learning of the 12 foundation stones. Learning of the 12 elements of the gospel is therefore learning of Christ and how He is represented in each of them. The 12 elements of the gospel thus provides the framework of truth for faith to function in, making faith living and pleasing to God.

      While reflecting upon the value of each element we see that salvation indeed is free but not free from responsibility. It is our responsibility to serve God in Spirit and in truth to co work with Him. We serve God as we daily labour with the tools that He has sanctified for that purpose. It is through our contact with God that we are daily being saved, daily fed with the manna from heaven, the bread of life which is Christ, we see that God desire for us to keep in contact with Him daily. God is the provider for us and as we daily are joint to Him through our labour with the tools, we receive healing and deliverance in the soul. Through our daily contact with the tools we walk in the light of Christ and are continually focused upon Him.

      As we daily serve God in Truth, God is pleased and we are kept by the power of His grace, His fruit carries us, and we endure through the transition from darkness to light.

      Amen, blessed are those who continually apply themselves with the grace and truth of God for they receive strength for their continuance in faith.

Wheel interlocks the work of God with how you experience the grace of God in the real world. It used to be that "grace" was something we said before we dug into our super. But now God has unlocked the true meaning of grace so that your faith can reflect the riches of Jesus Christ.

    Faith is the Second Foundation Stone - Faith is an Essential Element of the Gospel

    12 foundation stones. The second stone is faith.
    12 foundation stones. The second stone is faith.

    Grace is the first of the 12 Foundation Stones and faith is the second stone. God wants us to build a strong faith with the stones of His knowledge. They are the practice of our faith. But it is difficult to practice faith unless we first are able to define what faith is.

    Definition of faith: To Acknowledge, mold, with, and submit to. (Definition by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck)

    Many times a person may say that they believe in God, but they only acknowledge that He exists. The faith the Bible talks about requires man to mold his affections with and submit to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ died for the sins of the whole world, why isn't the whole world saved? Because faith is required of us in order to be saved! This is why Jesus said, "Have faith in God," (Mk.11:22).

    Most people define ‘faith’ as simply believing that God exists. But we read in the scriptures that those who profess faith in God need to do more than just believe that God exists. Heb.11:6 reads, "Without faith it is impossible to please God."

    God wants us to please Him through faith. The apostle James taught that "FAITH without WORKS (of demonstration) is dead," Jas.2:26. This scripture lets us know that the kind of faith that pleases God is accompanied by the works which please God. Faith is not only demonstrated by what we say, but by what we DO.

    Anyone can say they believe in God; anyone can say they have faith in God, but faith that is not expressed is dead faith (which cannot bring forth the activity that pleases God). Just knowing that faith in God is necessary in order to be saved, and knowing what Jesus said about faith, and realizing that faith in God needs to be expressed by the works which please God does not tell us WHAT faith is and HOW to demonstrate it.

        The virtue of God manifests His longsuffering in the righteous but sinners use their imagination as His virtue to avenge their pride.

        The language of faith purifies the conscience.

        The Frame work of our faith is built upon the foundation of truth. The altar was built upon whole stones for sacrifices so the offerings where not considered as a open pit barbarque to satisfy the flesh. But were offered to show loss of the flesh to gain the approval of God. Today our charity suffers the loss of the boast of man (flesh) to gain the worthiness of God through Jesus Christ.

        Believers that do not understand the language of God's kingdom will wander in their textual ambiguity seeking to discover what truth is and begin to design truth into a theology of events in place of the Record of Christ for faith. One pursues promises for security while the one of faith pursues to know God in grace and truth

      • profile image

        ApostleEric 3 years ago

        When believers take upon themselves to discover what truth is they also give themselves permission to take the ownership of the knowledge. This promotes schism and removes the power that begets the unity of the faith. The anointing being absent in the process of regeneration they now must turn the grace of God into lasciviousness. Knowledge absent the power forces the believer (unconverted) to advocate their own fruit system.

        To speak the language of the 12 elements is to speak the language of Jesus Christ. It is through this language alone that we can have perfect fellowship with God and the brethren. Why? Because it is pure and not defiled with human philosophy and reasoning. How wonderful it is to live by the knowledge that truly pleases our Father in Heaven!

        The 12 Elements of the Gospel is the pattern of Christ. If you had the recipe that would give you great success, would you take it? How about the recipe for Christ to be formed in the inner man? Would you pass the oppertunity to get to the mind of God? I want to know the Creator of me, the lover of my soul. This is the liberty we have, to know God through this wonderful knowledge of the 12 elements of the Gospel, given by the blood of Christ.

        False knowledge is defined by scripture in the FRS which puts the unbeliver and unconverted beliver in the wrong direction for faith and the participants never come into the image and likeness of Christ apart from the 12elements of the gospel without the foundation of truth being laid in the heart by living apostles for faith. But those who buid apart from this foundation build on sand which shifts by every wind of doctrine but those who have this foundation laid in their hearts by living apostles are able to build on a solid foundation. The 12 elements are the 12 stones of the altar of Christ with Him being the ChiefCorner Stone where we lay our spiritual sacrifice of prophecies.

        Apart from the anointing of truth in the heart the scriptures remain mere ink on paper whereby the window of the imagination becomes the inspiration for interpretation. One needs a sure foundation in Jesus Christ through the 12 whole stones of the gospel to understand how the written words confirm the Living Word.

        We are either working with the 12 foundation stones of Christ in our faith, the anointed Corner Stone, and He brings His likeness to the soul, or we work with Scripture to try to imitate Christ that lacks His likeness, trying to patch up the nakedness of the soul with the fig leaves of scriptures. Those who stand outside of the Anointing of Truth stand outside of Christ and their lamps perhaps doubtfully trimmed now will soon go out as the world gets darker than midnight. For then the bridegroom will call them, and being foolish in standing without will not have received the needed anointing oil to enter in.

        In order for us to reflect the mind of Christ it is necessary for us to have a foundation of truth within the heart that is Jesus Christ. That is why God has restored the gospel of Jesus Christ in the 12 elements of the gospel back to the Church in this time for believers to function under His Headship being of one mind in Christ Jesus.

        The 12 whole stones of the gospel provide to us a framework of truth for us to believe in and grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Just as Jesus told us that He is the truth, we are to function with the knowledge He has provided in this covenant of Jesus Christ through the contact points of the Spirit for us to know Him and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

        When we look at the beauty of the world around us, we see the manifestation of Christ as our Creator . We see God's glory and majesty and power in nature. In the trees, the animals, the mountains, the valleys, the oceans, glaciers and even in how incredible the function of the human body is. God is saying: "I am your creator. I give and sustain life."

        However, the knowledge of Christ as our Creator is not the knowledge that brings life to the soul. In order for us to experience the fullness of Christ and have the soul shaped into the image and likeness of God, we need to function with the knowledge that speaks to us about Christ being our Redeemer. This is where the 12 foundation stones come in. These elements speaks to us about the plan of God to heal and restore the soul so that we may be compete and perfect in Him.

        It is essential for each believer to have this foundation knowledge for faith laid in their hearts by living apostles, for it is this knowledge alone that will make faith living and able to function according to the will of our Father

        When truth is leavened it is no longer truth. Truth has to reflect the image of Jesus Christ because He is the person called truth, given to us in the form of knowledge through the 12 whole stones of the gospel. When truth therefore is leavened it doesnât reflect Jesus Christ and the Father cannot bear witness to it. God is restoring the truth to His Church through apostolic stewardship so the heart of believers will reflect the image of Jesus Christ: Receiving the foundation of truth through the 12 whole stones of the gospel is essential for this.

        Many believe that knowledge complicates faith. But this is not the case. When knowledge comes directly from God, faith is simplified.

        Faith becomes complicated when it functions according to the mindset and traditions of man. Through the return of the knowledge of the 12 foundations stones the function of faith becomes simple. That is why Jesus said that His yoke is easy and His burden is light

        Amen Evangelist Monique! It is truly wonderful to see the promises of God in these elements and how He fulfills them. We continue steadfast in the doctrine of the Apostles, becuse we know that Jesus Christ is the promise of our labour. The elements combined form that pattern of Christ and yet we see Him in each element individually as well. This is why we experience the fullness of Christ in the covenant. With each element, Jesus, God's promise to us, is fulfilled.

        The promises of God to those who love Him are fulfilled in each of the elements of the gospel.

        The promise of God to reveal Himself to us (Grace)

        The promise of God to allow Christ to stand for us as the standard for our faith (Righteousness)

        The promise of God to encraft His Spirit within us (Sanctification)

        The promise of God to buffer the soul during times of agitation as we go through our cycles of growth (Peace)

        The promise that we will be free from condemnation and free to serve Him in Righteousness (Justification)

        The promise that we will cease to labour with iniquity (Rest)

        The promise that we will be holy as God is holy (Holiness)

        The promise that God will heal and restore the soul after His own image and likeness (Regeneration)

        The promise that we will gain the mind/perspective of Christ (Renewing of the mind).

        Apostles today define each of these elements to us according to Godâs mind. But it is the Spirit that makes this knowledge living as we go through experience with each of these elements. God daily proves to us His faithfulness as he fulfills these promises daily. How wonderful it is that God is restoring to the church the foundation knowledge of faith!

        @anonymous: Amen Ruhan, the truth of God sets the boundaries for the activity of faith, that our service to God is no longer left up to the imagination, but exercised according to His standard and expectation which He set in Christ. When service to God is left up to the imagination we can see faith being built upon the shifting sands resulting in the 'mountain valley' experience, while when service to God is by His Spirit and truth we build faith upon the rock (the 12 elements of the gospel of Jesus Christ) and daily experience the grace, peace and mercy of God towards us.

        I never cease to stand in awe at the simplicity of Christ in truth. Before learning of these 12 foundation stones of the altar of Christ for covenant faith in Him, I remember coming to realize that the gospel I had been taught to share by my fellow church goers was not what I had experienced. It had been 'simplified' to the 'bare essentials' so 'keep the main thing the main thing'... it was a gospel commonly found on evangelical tracks. The problem was that it actually produced confusion through the carrot and horse scenario. The promise was always placed in front of but just outside the of the horse in an attempt to keep it moving along. I realized that they didn't know the God I experienced alone in my bedroom before reading a bible and before sitting in their pews... and I wasn't in touch with Him any longer either. I had been awakened to the fact that I was lost but I had not yet been saved until I was instructed in the new covenant doctrine of Christ by a living apostle. Praise God for restoring again sight to the blind and setting the captives free to serve Him in grace and truth!!

        This is so true. Just as God set a pattern, a specific set of instructions within which Israel had to worship Him, so to has He set a pattern for our worship of Him in the New Covenant. This pattern is contained within the twelve whole stones of the altar starting with the element of Grace. And just as He instructed Israel, we are to used the stones untouched by man's aspiration and principle using it pure as He has set it within Christ.

        Life More Abundantly?

        Because God set His Son's imprint in the twelve elements of the gospel, (the foundation knowledge), Jesus can be seen in each whole, i.e., (unpolluted by the traditions of man) stone or element....each of which our Father has perfectly fitted for the purpose of our reciprocation to Him....within the boundaries of the New Covenant. Herein, believers who are instructed in this foundation knowledge, Christ's doctrine, are overseen by apostles, as each of the twelve elements are laid in God's desired order in the heart....thereby giving His structure to the knowledge of Jesus....one doctrine, one government, one faith.

        As God brings the grace, we are healed from all pernicious and deleterious effects of iniquity that only the holy and structured knowledge of Jesus can bring....and we grow in wisdom, knowledge, understanding, wholeness & Life more abundantly, (John 10:10).

        The elements of the gospel provide a holistic foundation for our reciprocation to God. Without them we cannot live a lifestyle of faith for there is no foundation knowledge to reflect on to occupy the mind and there is no foundation knowledge to draw from and utter in praise of God. How can we please God with ignorance of what qualifies faith? We cannot. Therefore we need the foundation knowledge (elements of the gospel) to shed light on God's expectations because when we know what God expects we can respond to what He initiates for contact and obtain the fruits of the Spirit that increase the soul after His likeness.

Laboring only with the things made known by the new and pure knowledge of Christ, built on the whole stones of the gospel, shuts out access to the imagination by Satan, while disconnecting the power of the old knowledge....and....as we follow after doctrine laid in our hearts by living apostles appointed by God, not man, Christ's knowledge is preserved & set in order in our heart, reflected in the ordered activity of our priesthood....by the fruit of our lips, expressing Jesus within. Nurturing those fruits keeps us moving from the Kingdom of Darkness.

        Consistently and faithfully embracing Christ's Holy Knowledge, as well as the (8) other New Covenant tools God has sanctified and provided, allows His Spirit to make faith living, each day. Within the parameters of the 12 foundational elements of the gospel upon which we build, by the indwelling Spirit of God is our thinking inhabited and ordered....as our faith is made living....and we grow....as do Christ's fruits within....as we abide at the Altar, within the temple, using the tools of our priesthood each day, during a l l the seasons of God's work/operation within our soul....continuing to bring increase to the Kingdom of God, as well as glory, honor & praise to the Father.

        I was reflecting today upon the last 2 elements of the gospel; Regeneration and the Renewing of the Mind and remembered how before I entered covenant and receive the foundation of Christ laid within my heart with the 12 foundation stones of the gospel when I read any scripture about the mind of Christ I would automatically assume that I was to memorize the scriptures and then my mind would be renewed in Christ.

        It is a good thing to memorize scriptures, but in doing so we in no way are renewed in our mind.

        The false religious system has taught in error that the renewing of the mind also regenerates the soul, but in reality as we endure the cycles of our growth our soul is regenerated and then our mind is renewed to see from the perspective of God.

        As we study the foundation stones of our faith and use the other tools of the covenant our soul is going through the process of cleansing and renewal by truth as the false knowledge satan sowed in us while in his kingdom is being removed and replaced with truth and the fruit thereof.

        God does everything in order and our faith is no exception, if we are not educated by His apostles, the "Masterbuilders" of our faith than we have no direction or sure foundation upon which to build our faith for increase and fruitbearing.

        The church/believer without this education will only do vain works by their aspiration and imagination joined to the scriptures, thus their salvation will never become their reality.

        All 12 elements of the gospel of Jesus Christ work together for the same purpose: for us to serve God (functioning in the priesthood and stewarding of His grace), to know God (through the process of regeneration and fruit bearing) and for ordination (preparation for function in one's calling in service to the Body of Christ).

        What is it within you today that you can say you are being made in the image of Christ. Only the likeminded with Christ and only those made in his likeness will enter the gates of heaven. If you are on Gods Foundation of Truth then you are being made in his likeness and are developing the mind of Christ. Make sure today your foundation is Christ for other foundation does not bring about these results.

        After I read through this post again it just came to my attention that this post would be difficult to understand without the stewardship of living Apostles. This knowledge for faith can only be understood when explained by the government of God.

        The elements of the Gospel is not just some beautiful words put together to form a perspective. It is a living activity that takes place in the soul, as God establishes His Christ within the innerman.

        Understanding this post about the 12 elements is neccessary for growth in the spirit. One can have the knowledge but without the understanding it is just knowledge. Again one can understand the importance of having living Apostles today, to whom God gives a measure of grace, to give us the understanding of His Word.

        What strikes me the most about the 12 foundation stones of our faith is that every one of these 12 elements perfectly represents Jesus Christ and together in union they represent Him as well; I love this because it means that the image of Christ cannot remain pure once theses stones are tempered. Individually they must remain whole and in union (all 12 elements present) they must remain whole. This frees the mind from trying to pick and choose what it can or cannot agree with - faith requires obedience to grace and I have found that the Lord's grace continually unfold my understanding as I study the 12 stones of Christ. It makes my faith living and powerful .

        The believer must have knowledge for faith. The church being void of the knowledge of the foundation of Christ for 2000 years has taken the scriptures in the way of the flesh by man joining the text with the record of his own soul.

        When we in covenant speak about the knowledge necessary for faith we are speaking of the "heavenly ordered knowledge" being the 12 foundation stones of the gospel. if this foundation has not been laid in the heart by Gods chosen and living apostles the faith of the believer will remain dead, void of the life of Christ.

        The knowledge of Satan's kingdom is contrary to faith and therefore is an offense to Jesus.

        We have confidence in our salvation when we (we) are those who utilized the tools of the new covenant, government, truth, Spirit, gifts, callings, graces of God, prayer, preaching and prophecy, which is also essential to our spiritual growth. Knowing this is the will of our Lord makes our confidence sure in Christ, but man put the confidence of their salvation in the tools of Moses, which are the tools of darkness, tithing, communion, water baptism, feast days observation, 10 Commandment, the washing of feet and the Sabbath day which things destroys faith in Christ which are the deeds God hates. Because a carnal mind is born of the flesh and do mind the things of the flesh which things are an enmity against God.

        Christ is consealed within these whole stones of knowledge,He bridges the gap betwween us and God, as He mediates these covenant terms for us ,to be holy as He is holy.Christ is the fulfillment of the law and therefore our repentance is sealed in Him by the terms of His new covenant..the 12 elements of the gospel is the backbone of our faith.

        Christ is the foundation of our faith when it has been laid in the heart with the 12 whole stones of the gospel by Gods chosen and living apostles, for no other foundation can be laid for faith to be made living and accepted by God than this.

        Praise God for teaching again this foundation knowledge of Christ which was first preached by His apostles to the church for our experiencing the love of God being perfected in our hearts! I know this doctrine to be true by the power of God making it living within my heart daily as I labor in faith at the altar of Christ in my heart with the sanctified tools of His Spirit. Praise God!

        Ever wonder why you felt that your faith needs just something to make it more effective, or maybe you feel that your faith is week because you lack some sort of gift that would make it strong?

        These feelings of faithlessness is not uncommon amongst Christians today as we can see the 100âs of books that is written trying to solve the mystery of weak faith. Today believers are flocking to seminars hoping to hear someone bring clarity to man many problems.

        Unfortunately as the seminars and books increases we see the many problems that faith faces increase. We must ask why? Because as man shifts his focus from one problem to the next using the remedies of man [books and seminars], Satan is always there with the counterfeit promising resolve but bringing more death.

        True faith is consistent, itâs enduring, itâs not affected by circumstance and itâs not shifted by the wiles of the devil. True faith is built upon the foundation of truth which Jesus Christ is the corner stone. This foundation has the 12 elements of the gospel as its substance and therefore the face of Christ is seen in those who daily built with these foundation stones. As believers learn the value of the elements their faith shifts from being controlled by fear and lack, to being empowered by grace and truth.

        Understanding what faith is and needs, starts with obedience and willingness to submit to Gods grace.

        Christ has provided for the true building of His house by the stewardship of His house though building with the 12 elements of the gospel.

        It was Christ at the mountain top where those who first heard were astonished at His doctrine.

        Those who are wise in their own hearts want proof of stewardship but those who are wise in the Holy Spirit come as little children to sit at the feet of revelation knowledge, and hear the gnosis of their Heavenly Father, and by faith and pateince build the house of God in the Spirit.

        What God initiates, grace sustains. Grace is the first element of the gospel, and in each element is a portion of grace so it can be brought to completion. Without the grace of God, nothing can take root, nothing can be brought to completion and without grace we would not understand any of these processes.

        Building with the elements of the Gospel gives one the confidence to boldly come to the throne of God in times of need. As we learn Gods expectation our needs becomes spiritual and not fiscal, this means that we no longer need the comforts of the flesh as the effectiveness of Gods elements have changed our perspectives from what we lack in This life to what gain in eternal substance.

        As the elements of the Gospel become the building blocks for faith, the searching for Gods approval stops, for man searches for what he lacks, therefore true substance eludes them that build with anything less than what the elements provides.

        If you haven heard of what these elements are and you wish to experience Tue consistency of Covenant faith read the article in the link below. Ask God to open your eyes and gives you understanding and yes the truth shall set you free.

As natural DNA transfers the likeness of the parent to the offspring, so too when our faith functions with the 12 elements of Christ within the environment of the 2nd covenant, then the likeness of God is transferred to the soul, thus we are called sons of God.

        Are you trying to build your house of faith? Well you need to begin with the blueprints. A called apostle of Jesus Christ will use the proper blueprints to set a strong foundation in you so you can build a strong house of faith. In starting out with a strong foundation your "will", will not grow weary and exhausted, but rather the wind of the Spirit will carry you from faith to faith, you will come to know from where and how it blows over the soul, and His breath will be much stronger than the wind that will be blowing outside of your strong house of faith.

        Just as God required in the covenant of Moses that His altar be built with whole stones upon which burnt offerings could be offered (Deuteronomy 27:6), He requires in the covenant of Jesus Christ that His altar be built with whole stones of truth upon which spiritual sacrifices can be offered (1 Peter 2:5).

        These whole stones of truth are the 12 elements of the gospel that are the Word of God expressing the very essence of Christ. We identify God by these and are able to resource all that God has provided on the cross by these elements of the gospel.

        Without a strong foundation their are no anchor bolts for your faith. it will be carried about with every strong wind of false doctrines. The soul will not have the strong anchor to uphold itself with the things that must still be uprooted from its ground. By the 12 foundatation stones a strong house is built and the soul has its fruits of darkness removed from it, and the fruit of Christ placed their when it is the correct and proper foundation. The only foundation for the soul is the 12 foundation stones of Christ that make up the complete foundation. For other foundation can no man lay, for another will not sustain faith.

        @anonymous: Amen Apostle Andre!

        We can see the very same mindset exist today 2000 years later. This is the result of a lack of the foundation of Christ being laid within the heart with the 12 elements of the gospel.

        The modern day Pharisees do the same today as they use the line and precept of the scriptures to condemn the righteous and smite the face of Christ. They are unable to rightly divide the word to separate the covenant of Moses from the covenant of Christ, thus they mix the two and persecute Gods people by the moral code, the Law of Moses.

        Christ is not the text of the written word, but is the Living Word of God. He desires we embrace and touch Him by faith with the tools of the new covenant for the healing of our soul and the bearing of the fruit of His virtue.

        God has raised up living apostles today to teach the believer the original apostles doctrine that they may embrace Christ, be zealous for the good works of the new covenant priesthood instead of being a "fanatic" with the line and precept of the scripture by which they persecute the children of God.

        Jesus did not walk around carrying a 10 lb Torah to convince people the truth was there in it, as most christians do today with their bibles. He said the Spirit of the Lord is upon me for he has anointed me to preach... this is what the pharasees hated for they were carrying around their 10lb Torah's even trying to hit Jesus over the head with it, Jesus Christ being the Living Torah. Jesus set a different pattern apart from the text and distinguished Himself from the text of the scriptures. Setting a pattern in the Spirit for Foundation Truth to be set in the believer, the same anointing He recieved of the Father. Thus the reason for Apostolic Government now comming to the church. It is the apostles who set this Foundation of Truth in those who believe in those that are destined for eternal life.

        @anonymous: Hi Gordon,

        Thank you for leaving your comment. I believe I can help you in the areas where you seem to be confused with your information.

        GORDON SAYS: Where in the world do these people come from? Oh, I know! They can't tell the difference between the Holy Spirit and the devil who probably told them that they had received the Holy Spirit when they believed but didnn't have any proof.

        MARIA SAYS: Please refer to the course What is Covenant. There are 9 lessons that takes the reader through the 4 steps to come into covenant with God. Grace is the first step. Faith is the second step, righteousness is the third step, and the seal of the Spirit (baptism of the Holy Spirit) is the 4th step. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the sign of tongues.

        http://www.s8wministries.org/general.php?id=15

        Lesson 1 -- The Vow of Covenant

        Lesson 2 -- The Covenant Contract

        Lesson 3 -- A Covenant of Blood

        Lesson 4 -- 4 Steps to Covenant Faith

        Lesson 5-- God Has Always Been a Covenant God

        Lesson 6 -- God Seals Your Faith With the Token of the Spirit

        Lesson 7 -- The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is Evidenced by Tongues

        Lesson 8 -- The Purpose of Tongues

        Lesson 9 -- The Adoption

        Prayer For Salvation

        Lesson 8 brings to the readerâs attention the importance of the TOOL OF TONGUES and how God uses this tool daily as He heals the soul of Satanâs scars and sets within the soul the virtue of Christ.

        IN ADDITION -- to the tool of tongues, whereby the Holy Spirit makes intercession for us in regard to the healing needed within the soul, the Holy Spirit also acts as the WITNESS to the RECORD of Christ. It is Godâs will that your faith be empowered by the Holy Spirit.

        The witness is the accompanying presence and power of God in your faith to sanctify your faith, make it living, and tether you to God. âThis is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth,â (1 John 5:6).

        You can read more about the WITNESS of the Spirit in our free lesson The Witness Follows the Record: http://www.s8wministries.org/lesson.php?id=6&a...

        IN ADDITION -- to the witness of the Spirit upon the record of Christ, God gave the church the 9 spiritual tools of Jesus Christ that we might touch Him. Jesus in turn touches us with the POWER of His GRACE. This is what He promised, that if we would keep His commandments, He would manifest Himself to us (John 14:21).

        The GRACE that is to be brought unto you at the REVELATION of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:13). Letâs now look at the operation of God in the virtue of grace and why God calls GRACE a POWER: You are learning in these lessons that the tools of Jesusâ covenant are your tether to God. That means that they are the link whereby the virtue of Christ is transferred to you. The grace of God is of power to daily communicate and reveal Christ, illuminate, enlighten, and awaken the soul that you may have His life. Grace is Godâs technique for developing Christ in you. As a result:

        1. Grace births faith in the heart: Without faith is it impossible to please God.

        2. Grace gives us a heart to perceive Christ: We see Him in our faith rather than ourselves.

        3. Grace gives strength to the will to choose righteousness.

        4. Grace is of power to grant equity in the inner man between the mind and emotions.

        5. Grace is of power to grant single mindedness: As the mind is brought under the power of Godâs grace, it is no longer looking for the will of God in the flesh.

        6. Grace is of power to grant sober mindedness: The soul is no longer drunk on the promise of the world.

        7. Grace is of power to nourish the heart with the substance of Godâs kingdom.

        8. Grace is of power to enlarge the heart with Godâs fruit.

        9. Grace is of power to keep us rooted in Christ: The imagination is brought into subjection to Christ, and the soul no longer wanders after the world.

        Now you can understand the operation of God in grace. Although these virtues can be described individually, Godâs design for them is to impact your soul all at once. The virtue of grace in turn produces these powers upon the soul: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance. You need the power of grace to produce these fruits of the Spirit.

        IN ADDITION -- We are commanded to be good STEWARDS of the MANIFOLD GRACE of God (1 Peter 4:10). This is how we see the connection between the daily giving of grace by God, the operation of God in grace, and Body Ministry as we each steward the grace we received. Now grace multiplies and Godâs signs and wonders in the church multiply in each heart.

        You can learn more about the TOOLS of the SECOND COVENANT and proper stewardship of grace and how to live daily by the POWER of GODâS GRACE by using this link:

        GORDON SAYS: There is only one foundation stone :"Jesus Christ"

        MARIA SAYS: God placed Jesus Christ in each of the 12 Foundation Stones.

        Jesus is GRACE

        Jesus is FAITH

        Jesus is RIGHTEUOSNESS

        Jesus is JUSTIFICATION

        Jesus is SANCTIFICATION

        Jesus is HOLINESS

        Jesus is PEACE

        Jesus is REST

        Jesus is CHARITY

        Jesus is TRUTH

        Jesus is REGENERATION

        Jesus is RENEWING OF THE MIND

        Faith enables you to see Him. What Satan did was take each of the 12 Foundation Stones and assigned the aspiration of man to them so that the scriptures are read to confirm the tradition of man to keep alive manâs aspiration, principle, and imagination.

        Faith must express Jesus Christ. Therefore, the Spirit will give witness to Jesus Christ only upon the use of Godâs true definitions of each of the 12 Elements of the Gospel.

        There has to be a pattern first before a likeness can be seen. We see God preaching this to us in all of nature. A pattern exists first (as in DNA) and then a likeness is seen. When God sees your faith He wants to see the likeness of Jesus Christ. Therefore He gave the church the pattern of truth and knowledge of Jesus in each of the 12 Foundation Stones. This knowledge must be set in order by the sanctified stewards (the apostles) as they did in the early church.

        When man took the 12 Foundation stones, he defined them according to his aspiration. This is why faith is so messed up. Christians always knew that God set order to knowledge. They knew that there must be a divine connection between grace and faith and righteousness and sanctification and justification. They knew that truth and charity must somehow fit together. But believers are at a loss to know how the pattern works.

        God is restoring the knowledge to the 12 Foundation Stones to the church to remove SELF from the throne of the heart and set Jesus Christ upon the throne of the heart.

You can watch the teaching videos, view the text version of the video, download the free Ebook, enjoy the powerful flipbook presentation, or take the lesson and quiz yourself.

        Where in the world do these people come from? Oh, I know! They can't tell the difference between the Holy Spirit and the devil who probably told them that they had received the Holy Spirit when they believed but didnn't have any proof. They simplify the Gospel to the size of their inadequate understanding of the Scriptures to create a "new defination" of what the Christian Life is supposed to be like. Like the Scribes and Pharisees, because their definition of receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit excludes the "signs" of proof (Mk. 16: 17 - 18) and "the Gifts of the Spirit" (Rom. 12: 5 - 8; 1 Cor. 12: 8 - 10) they are still operating on the basis of "vain imaginations" which create new traditions of men which make void the Word of God (Mk. 7: 13) and "teaching for doctrines the commandments of God" (Matt. 15: 8 - 9). There is only one foundation stone :"Jesus Christ" (Matt. 21: 42; Mk. 12: 10; Lk. 20: 17; Acts 4: 11; Eph. 2: 20; 1 Pet. 2: 6 - 7). These people just prove their lack of Biblical Knowledge. Their so-called 12 Foundational Stones have no foundation in the Scriptures except they or whoever have gone through the Bible, picking and choosing with their corrupted minds a structure that is inaccurate. As the angel said to the disciples when he had released them from prison, "Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LIFE" (Acts 5: 20). All the words of this life are the Foundational Stones. But, of course, such people don't like all the words of this life.

        Gordon Williams http://gordwilliams.com/

        The 12 Foundational stones is hogwash! People who are devoid of miracles, signs and wonders, ie the power of the Holy Spirit, are deceivers who have a form of godliness but deny it's power and are deceiving others!

Deuteronomy 27:5(KJV) And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.

        We must build with the stones of Christ if we want the house to reflect Him.

God issues grace and we respond in faith, God thereby declares us righteous, for our activity of faith meets His standard and expectation, our response to righteousness is justification, by our response to grace through faith we are free from condemnation and free to act in God's interest. God initiates sanctification by separating us from the world unto Himself (Baptism of the Holy Spirit), we respond in holiness as we separate ourselves from the world unto God (priesthood). God initiates His peace to buffer the soul to assist us through the transition that the soul is undergoing and we enter into our rest in Christ as we labour at the altar of Christ. God initiates the element called charity, because He first expressed His love (Jesus Christ) towards man, which we receive in the form of knowledge called truth. God initiates regeneration as the Spirit effects healing in the soul (increase of the new man) and this results in the renewing of our mind (the new perspective - God's perspective).

        I want to share a spiritual sacrifice that one of the saints had which edified me alot today:

        Let the subject of your thoughts be the 12 elements of the Gospel of Christ, for they contain the life and mysteries of Christ our Saviour.

        By grace do we behold the face of Christ in these elements of the gospel.

        By grace do we perceive the mysteries of His kingdom.

        By His knowledge do we walk in His testimony.

        I remembered how God prepared me for the understanding of this Foundation of His Truth through these 12 Elements of the Gospel that true Covenant Apostles are now Restoring to the church.

        I had a dream where I was standing in an open field an all I could see was just tall grass and these 12 stones laying scattered in the grass on my right-hand side! Then I heard the Lord say to me in the dream "BUILD MY HOUSE". When I woke up I thought... but Lord, there is not enough stones to build a house with?

        But soon after that I came to learn what it meant to build the "house of God" with the 12 Foundation Stones ~ The 12 Essential Elements of the Gospel which is the Foundation of Truth that truly makes Jesus Christ the Chief Cornerstone upon which we build the true Habitation of the Holy Spirit... and that God will only inhabit that which HE has built!

        Today I can testify of a wholesome and sound Faith after years and years of false indoctrination and never coming to know Christ in His fullness in all the different denomination churches I attended. To KNOW and UNDERSTAND the meaning of these 12 Elements of the Gospel has given sound and wholesome direction for my Faith and truly established me in the true Righteousness of God as I was and still are still daily studying the true Doctrine of the Apostles... Building my Faith according to that same Blueprint for Faith that Jesus taught His apostles to teach believers. There truly is no greater gift that to KNOW HIS TRUTH and I still praise God daily for leading me to Second 8th Week Ministries Worldwide today for through the Doctrine of Christ they taught me, I have gained new hope and the true Perspective of God for my Faith to be perfect and acceptable in His sight! Praise God!!!

        We can see in the church today the false belief that the mind is renewed by the reading of the scriptures, because they lack the true foundation of Christ laid within the heart with the 12 stones of faith they do not experience regeneration which is the operation of God upon the soul which is prior to having a mind renewed in Christ and not the other way around.

        We can see then it is necessary to follow due process of faith by submitting to Gods government, truth and Spirit to receive the proper foundation laid, for a mind that is not renewed in Christ is unable to possess the perspective of God and will therefore retain the perspective of the flesh, carnally minded instead of spiritually minded.

        For to build a sturdy structure, a firm foundation must first be laid. No builder would question the wisdom of needing to follow the due process for building which begins with receiving and studying the blueprint followed by the laying of the foundation all prior to building anything that resembles the desired outcome. So also with faith in Christ. Thank God for raising up stewards of His knowledge again as wise masterbuilders who have been given the original design for faith as taught by Christ and all His living apostles.

        Today's Christians are always looking for new and improved ways to grow in faith. They go from bookshop to bookshop and from seminar to seminar. Christians are testifying that they are searching for the truth, searching for LIFE. The bible as most claim to be Gods road map to all the heavenly blessings aren't fulfilling its design, for their are around 48000 different denominations. One bible which says that there should be one truth, one baptism one faith is producing 48000 denomination..... Surly the bible is not teaching every man his own truth!!!

        The Knowledge of the 12 element are missing when these elements are replaced with mans logic the doctrine of man is birthed called the 48000 denominations. Come and learn Gods way of truth and walk in victory everyday. Through the knowledge of these 12 elements the foundation of Christ will be laid in your soul, and the house you build for God will be according to His design.

        It is through the 12 elements that we are able to abide in Christ as we continue to join ourselves to Him through those things that reflect Him perfectly. It is through these 12 elements that we are brought into His fullness for they bring us into the presence of the Most High.
